In 2011, The Center for Languages and Cultures was created with the mission to be a cross cultural bridge with the world for our students and community at SUNY Geneseo. Our goals are:

  • To provide a place where the Geneseo community (faculty, staff, students, village residents) may gather to learn about languages and cultures from around the world.
  • To establish a cross-cultural bridge between communities in order to develop empathy for other cultures.
  • To understand past and present cultural and linguistic diversity in order to create a better future.
  • To enhance students’ professional competencies by offering opportunities to be a language tutor to other SUNY Geneseo students.

In addition to offering free language tutoring to our students, the CLC organizes fun and informational activities to practice your skills. Please join us for:
